    Anxiety Due To HPPD (Hallucinogen Persisting Perception Disorder)

    I urge anybody who has been severely affected by hallucinogens to read about HPPD. It may give you hope as it's pioneer-Dr.Henry Abraham believes it can only be truly relieved by Clonazepam which is the least addictive strong Benzodiazipine. Loads of Old Schooler Shrinks are opposing it's...

    I need help

    I'm afraid that I am now a sociopath. I digged too deeply in the reality of the world and now I have seen the truth.

    I usually just post in my own thread, but wanted more people to see

    I read a lot. I mean a crazy a lot. More than is healthy I am sure, as it is my "avoidance", I suppose. I also read a lot because I have a prison penpal who also loves to read and I take it as a great and solemn privilege to choose books to send her. Having also taken world lit 1 & 2, I am not...

    Hi I know you guys don't know me. But I feel like sharing a bit. I hope nobody Minds. But the last couple of weeks I was going through some sort of dysphoric mania depression thing. But hopefully it's coming to an end. My doctor added antipsychotic and it seems to be helping somewhat. I hope it...

    No concentration

    I've been out of hospital for about 2 weeks, but I'm still struggling to concentrate. Really difficult getting anything meaningful done. Just watching TV and Facebook. Anything more constructive is just not happening. So annoying. Even reading seems hard. Only getting a few pages read at a...

    Something I read

    I think I read somewhere once that often, people with schizophrenia who can't tell that they are being delusional have no problem telling when someone else is being delusional. I seem to recall when I was in hospitals for my mental illness, I thought some of the other people were acting crazy...

    Why do people only tell you how much they love you when they think you want to off yourself? Because your death is an inconvenience and they dont wanna have to deal with the guilt - idiots. Everyone needs to read up on nhilism and how irrelevant everything is.

    I deserve to be normal. It sucks being like this

    I hate the way I'm feeling right now. I'm dealing with constant severe fatigue, numbness and brain fog. I've been like this for 15 out of my 21 years of existence. I'm trying to write a reflection on a text document I've read but I can't because the fatigue is debilitating. I just want to be...

    Schizophrenia Psychosis Books

    Please may you recommend books you have read about the subject of Schizophrenia or Psychosis. They could be fiction or non fiction. I have read "the Shock of the fall". It was ok...ish. I prefer something with a little more meat.
